The best meals in my home are fast, hot, easy and inexpensive.
This Crock Pot dish by Weight Watchers is all that and healthy too! Rich and tender beef, SO many veggies… This is the way to do pot roast RIGHT. Second helpings are encouraged!
I like to make Crock Pot meals on days when I want our dinner ready and waiting when we get home. With 4 adults and one pre-teen we all have different schedules.
To be able to serve yourself a hot and nutritious meal is key in my home.
When I started the Weight Watcher program I had to totally learn how to cook! Cutting the sugars, carbs and starches from my recipes was daunting.
Including cooked veggies in the meal was nothing new for the family. But I love raw veggies and rarely eat cooked. That was hard getting used to.
Cooking the veggies in the crock pot absorbed the juices of the rest of the dish. That opened a while new world to me!
The over boiled canned veggies from my childhood were nothing like these!
I hope you all enjoy this low fat and delicious meal for not just the New Year, but for many more meals during the year.
